I wish the anime continued on because the fighting doesn't make sense in the manga format it works best animated.

First Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei now Air Gear, Weekly Shōnen Magazine are really clearing out all the really long running manga that sell less than a 1 million copies a year.

Not by any means was it "canned". It's been clear it was ending for a while now...

Edited: spelling

Making sense of the fighting isn't what you should be worried about, it's everything else in the manga.

it should have ended last year

I can't call it serious or funny - it's just ridiculous the way it is right now.

Frankly, this is amazing this manga continued for a decade straight. I imagine the plot had to be changed several times, as with all manga, but I remember reading this manga years ago and being quite confused. I wasn't sure what was going on to be honest.

Del Ray has been licensing this series for now six years though, so this series must be selling reasonably well though.
